Typically if presented with a situation in which I have unlimited access to free cocktails, wine, meat and live music, the end of the night would find me packed to the brim with beef, dangling from the rafters like a crazed, cannibalistic bird of prey. But this was a classy affair, and luckily I managed to hold it together.
Here are some photographic highlights of the evening:
The author (pictured right) with certified lifeguard / high school art teacher, Marc Calello.
Grilled Wagyu, Hazelnut Potato Croquette, Black Trumpet Mushroom, Jerusalem Artichoke, Green Peppercorn Jus. Game over.
Grilled Leg of Lamb, Sicilian Cous Cous, Ricotta and Olive Salad
Skirt Steak, Pickled Jalapeno and Green Tomato Chimichurri (hate that word), Jalapeno Mashed Potatoes
Roasted duck. Ain't gonna front like I remember what else was in this one. But mad good nonetheless.
Aesthetically pleasing, artfully composed photograph of one of the 8 million wines I tasted adjacent to a plate of Boudin Blanc (white pork sausage), Kimchi and Mustard Emulsion
Straight chillin' with Tommy
